Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists discuss Jeb Bush’s 1995 lament that society no longer stigmatizes having children outside of marriage. Do we need more shame in our lives? Also up for discussion: The New York Times publishes a story critical of Sen. Marco Rubio’s finances, and House Democrats deal President Obama a blow on trade reform.

Scheer is joined by Josh Barro of The New York Times moderating from the center, Rich Lowry of the National Review on the right and Keli Goff of the Daily Beast as special guest.

Listen here.
